It's funny how sometimes the events can make it look like something is pulling the strings, but it happens that version 1.3 of the SwfObject plugin was released on 26th of September. Just one month later I released the 1.4 version that made it possible to use it with any site offering the typical <object> or <embed> code.
And now, exactly one month later another version is ready.
This one is even easier to install, now you only have to install this plugin and add the line to load it in your fckconfig.js file. The swfobject libreary will be loaded by default from the Google hosted servers. You can read about it in the SwfObject wiki: http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/wiki/hosted_library
Of course, you can keep on using your own hosted version, nothing has changed about that.
The other changes are related to people trying to paste videos. Well it turns out that even easy is not enough for some of them, and instead of trying to paste the code marked as "copy this video to embed this video" they want to paste the url of the page.
Ok, no problem, now some of those servers are automatically detected (YouTube, GoogleVideo, MetaCafe and the new MTV music). It's very easy to add new urls, but I don't wanna waste the time with it, there are too many sites around, and that people should learn to copy the correct code ;-)
Lastly a CDATA wrapper has been added to make those ones using XHTML pass validation.
The demo and download page are still the same: http://martinezdelizarrondo.com/swfobject/
